We have been overwhelmed by the interest in our JA Summer Classics 2020. The initiative was designed to highlight the championship standard golf facilities and 9 hole course at JA The Resort, while also familiarising golfers with the other attractions here at Dubai's largest experience resort. We thank both MEDICLINIC as a partner sponsor of JA The Resort and ProSports International for their continued support.
"The initiative is aligned to our 2020 Staycation Packages at JA The Resort. It is a key part of the JA The Resort marketing programme to encourage 2020 Staycations for this season, whether for non-golfers or golfers," McMurdo concluded.
